Peeking Kitty (High Hopes Rubber Stamps)

Hello, everyone!  Here's a card I made with a stamp I won last month from High Hopes Rubber Stamps - thank you!  You all know I love kitties! Just look at this adorable Peeking Kitty - isn't he sweet! I coloured him with my Prismacolor pencils and then did some very fussy cutting so I could pop him up with foam tape. It was touch-and-go around the bird and flower LOL!

I decided to make a little scene so I started by inking a cloud background on my card front.  I used Tumbled Glass Distress Ink and a cloud template from Netty's Cards (thank you!). Towards the bottom I inked Peeled Paint for a grassy landscape.  I used some fun dies to create the scene: the picket fence, birdhouses, and flying bird are from Impression Obsession, and the grass is from Lawn Fawn. I inked the grass die cut with Peeled Paint. The cute sentiment is from a Newton's Nook clear stamp set.

  7. He is so sweet! You just know he is looking over the fence and thinking, "Where are the birdies??!" not even knowing one is on his head.

    My ding dong kitty Charles ate the pink netting from a bag of oranges. Then he threw up two bites of it. We've been giving him petromalt and keeping an eye on things. We cheered his poop the other morning and he just thought he was the best cat ever. "They even applaud my poop!"

  8. How adorable Kitty, this is so sweet, love it!
